Star Trek Online Brouhaha

There is a bit of an uproar on the Star Trek Online forums, where many users are upset by a Star Trek Online promotion they say included 60 free days of game-time (in addition to the 30 days included with the purchase of the game) that was later rescinded. This has lead to this 300+ page thread and this 200+ page thread complaining about the situation. If you don't have the patience for over 500 pages of forum posts, you can check out this post that attempts to summarize the situation. Thanks Brian.

One more time: if you go in with realistic expectations, STO is good. Everyone's upset that it isn't the second coming. It's not the second coming, it's an MMO. It doesn't have deeply engrossing story material, it's an MMO. It doesn't have Starfleet Command's glacial pace of combat nor its depth of tactics, it's an MMO. Though I do find the space combat very fun and engaging FOR AN MMO. It's repetitive, yes, but so is WoW and nobody complains about that. If anything, you've got less repetition in STO because you don't spend half your play time grinding for gear. The only bad realistic element to STO is that because of the huge number of Star Trek fans in the world, the whiny peanut gallery has more babies in it than any MMO I've played. I don't think the whine community in STO is proportionally larger, it's just larger by merit of a larger population in general.

Also, everyone that says TOR is going to be substantially better is kidding themselves. It too will be an MMO, after all, and everyone who believes it will have a better story faces a rude awakening in the future. That is, unless TOR turns out to be a single player/cooperative game with a monthly fee...

Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
